We first wrote about the Eco Series 2500 model home in a blog titled, The Best Green Home for the Money posted on June 20th, 2016. At the time, builders Bob Hilliard and Jeff Gersh were about to start construction of their first Energy Smart Home Plans model in the Waterset Community, Apollo Beach. We had recently received the energy calculations revealing how amazingly efficient the 2,570 sq. ft., block home would be. All Energy-efficient gurus, Hi-Performance home fans and Net-Zero Energy groupies.
The extra-ordinary home is now finished and Eco-Friendly Home Builders must be congratulated! Not only is the model home gorgeous inside and out, it’s also a true Net-Zero Energy Home which means it offers zero, nada as in “NO” energy costs. In fact, the beautiful, furnished model home actually produces more energy than it uses. At the time of this blog post, you can even buy this competitively priced awesome house, but more on that later.
Energy Smart Home Plans owner Dave Jenkins worked closely with Eco Friendly Home’s Jeff Gersh through the preliminary design process. Four base model homes with two elevations each were meticulously crafted with living areas from 2,368 to 3,098 sq. ft. All will be built as Hi-Performance Homes with extremely low HERS scores (all under 50) making real Net-Zero Energy Homes affordable.
Green homes can be beautiful!
But that’s just a part of the story. The West Indies style, open concept home has four bedrooms, three baths and a den, adjacent a guest bath that can be a fifth bedroom, all under 2,600 sq. ft. The open concept great room, kitchen and dining area is in high demand. Spacious 10’ ceilings have treatments. The generous master suite offers a unique walk-in shower/bath tub spa combination and very generous master closets. The terrific kitchen is just what buyers are looking for today, right down to the waterfall edge island.
Here’s your chance to walk through this gorgeous Net-Zero, Eco-Friendly Home Builder’s model. This and their other inventory will not be available for long. Visit the model in the Waterset Community, 7012 Sail View Lane, Apollo Beach, FL 33572. Just take exit 246 on I-75 and head west on Big Bend Road to Waterset Blvd.
